(" Amaya" or the " Company") (TSXV: AYA), an entertainment solutions provider for the regulated gaming industry, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to sell to a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp., 20,000 units (the " Units") at a price of $1,000 per Unit, to raise gross proceeds of $20,000,000 (the " Base Offering").

In addition, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option (the " Underwriters' Option") to purchase up to 10,000 Units exercisable at any time, in whole or in part, 48 hours prior to the closing date of the Base Offering (together with the Base Offering, the " Offering").

The first payment will include accrued interest from and including the closing date but excluding July 31, 2013. Interest payments will be satisfied through cash payment and the Debentures will have a maturity date of January 31, 2016.
